RSS_256What Is RSS?

RSS stands for Really Simple Syndication. It's an easy way for you to keep up with news and information that's important to you, and helps you avoid the conventional methods of browsing or searching for information on websites. Now the content you want can be delivered directly to you without cluttering your inbox with e-mail messages. This content is called a "feed."

RSS is written in the Internet coding language known as XML (eXtensible Markup Language).

What Is an RSS Reader?

An RSS reader is a small software program that collects and displays RSS feeds. It allows you to scan headlines from a number of news sources in a central location.

 

How Do I Use RSS Feeds?

Most of the common browsers, such as Internet Explorer, Firefox, and Safari, have built in RSS readers. If your browser doesn't support RSS, there are a variety of RSS readers available on the web. To add a feed from GOFFSTOWN.COM click on the RSS button located above the content you are viewing. Your browser will display the RSS feed and you will be able to choose a RSS reader.
